Watch out for that wind!

Post  lordy on Wed Apr 11, 2012 7:46 pm

Last Sunday was Easter and my wife invited the whole fan damily, all 10 of her siblings and their associated broods. I cleaned up the yard and deck, and even brought out the umbrella for the deck table. What beautiful weather, sipping adult beverages and catching up with people I hadnt seen in a while. Fast forward to Monday. I was driving home from work as usual and a huge batch of leaves blew across the road in front of me. It was pretty windy, and at that moment it occurred to me that I never took the umbrella down from the deck. Uh oh. Well, when I got home and looked on the deck this is what I saw.


Evidently the wind lifted the umbrella and then it sent it sideways enough to shatter the glass tabletop. A hornbeam of mine was sitting on the table awaiting some minor work on Monday. It fell thru the shattered glass and bounced on the deck, losing a bit of soil, but thankfully it was wired into the pot and stayed fairly well planted. It did better than the table, however. Shocked

I'm glad the tree appears to be fine and I hope that it really is. My trident got knocked down off my bench too during violent wind yesterday.

Tie 'em down, is my new policy.

Have a great week!!!!
